DateTimeFormatInfo.Clone Method

Creates a shallow copy of the DateTimeFormatInfo.

Namespace:  System.Globalization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

abstract Clone : unit -> Object  
override Clone : unit -> Object

Return Value

Type: System.Object
A new DateTimeFormatInfo object copied from the original DateTimeFormatInfo.

Implements

ICloneable.Clone()

The clone is writable even if the original DateTimeFormatInfo object is read-only. Therefore, the properties of the clone can be modified with user-defined patterns.

A shallow copy of an object is a copy of the object only. If the object contains references to other objects, the shallow copy does not create copies of the referred objects. It refers to the original objects instead. In contrast, a deep copy of an object creates a copy of the object and a copy of everything directly or indirectly referenced by that object.
